Since the release of TimeCop (1994), Jean Claude Van Damme had taken part in some disappointing films, all of which failed to reflect the glory days of his career, though now he has shown he's still got the touch with Replicant, not just a good movie, but one of Van Damme's best and one of the better sci-fi action pieces out there.
Van Damme is extremely good in his performance, Michael Rooker provides good cover as the 2nd lead, and Ringo Lam masterfully directs. All of which makes it so odd as to why this film was not released theatrically in North America. Nonetheless, its the true JCVD fans who will take most pleasure from this movie, a definite not to miss.
